Polished, leg-lengthening and feminine – it’s no wonder our favourite designers are pushing pencils this season. Curvy celebrities like Jennifer Hudson are never afraid to wear things that show off their curves. You shouldn’t either.
One of the things I hate the most is when celebrity stylist and a few TV hosts constantly tell plus size curvy girls to wear a-line skirts. It drives me crazy because they make it seem like it’s the only skirt that is flattering for those of us with a little more body than the regular straight size 2’s and 4’s.
As a curvy girl with full child bearing hips, I purchase more pencil skirts than anything else (you’ve seen my cobalt blue one). I feel like a pencil skirt shows off my curvy hips in a sexy and chic way. So, if you feel like you can’t wear a pencil skirt because your hips are too big, I am here to tell you that you can. Omit what some magazines and stylists tell you. A pencil skirt on a plus size body is a sexy thing.
